    One of the things that would improve the game a lot, is the companion system. it would be great if you were able to keep your chocobo out while queuing for a dungeon. Also speaking of chocobos, I wish that they would also improve on the exp rate that chocobos get. It makes it a bit hard to level a chocobo because you can't summon it while waiting for a dungeon (and dungeon wait times on a DPS can sometimes take a while) and they also don't receive much exp in the first place. One of the main reasons why I want to level my chocobo is because I want to get the barding for it, also it is a bit helpful with hitting things. One other thing they can also improve in the companion system is just the way chocobos fight. Sometimes you get hit by something first and the chocobo just stands in battle stance looking like it wants to attack but doesn't. Also something can hit it, and it won't do anything.

    I agree one-hundred with your complaints about the companion system, it needs a rework.

    I have a bunch of small crafting related things I'd like to see improved. I want the ability to craft from my retainer, and I'd like to see better search options when I want to find some specific to craft. Like if I want to craft, lets say a Mythril Ingot, I shouldn't have to click around randomly to find it, I should be able to search for "mythril" to find it and craft it from there.

    Outside of that, I'd like to see the amount of rings you can carry be increased. When you craft, gather, and multiple classes at the level cap and are leveling other classes, it's so extremely easy to run out of room.

    The companion system definitely needs a rework, the AI in general is very lackluster in this game. Other than that maybe some crafting retouches.

    I think the addition of a few traditional MMO type world chat channels would be good. This say, yell, and shout stuff doesn't cut it.

    I second the improvement to companion mode, and that is frustrating when they just stand there looking ready and nothing actually happens. That would make things a lot smoother for me.

    This is one of the aspects that I feel a major lack in the question of a very heavy improvement. When that is solved the game reaches another level.

    I agree, not only is it one of the biggest if not the biggest issue, it has never been addressed.

    Well... Let's wait for this problem to be solved as soon as possible because I'm pretty sure that they are aware of this one.

    Well staying silent doesn't help either parties, better to always inform the players.

    Well... I think a lot of them also know the problem, but they don't come together to try to solve it. It has to be teamwork (but unfortunately, many of them don't want to do this).

    That's quite unfortunate that the egos of some individuals get in the way of success.

    You said a very important word because people's ego is too big everything gets even more complicated. :confused:

    The influence of ego can hurt any project as Shine and jakub stated.

    Unfortunately ego has a lot of impact since many people put it ahead of success.

    The ego is what ends up destroying or preventing many achievements. Unfortunately, people with this type of vision still exist in large majority.

    Not only do they exist in large numbers, they hold great influential positions.

    Unfortunately this is an even bigger problem. I'm sure the developers are aware of the problems that exist in Final Fantasy. Let's hope for the best. :D

    I can see your point but hopefully they do something to change it.

    Unfortunately I have to agree, but I think they'll solve this very soon. I mean, they must to do this as soon as possible.
